Show me the money! US to Invest $4 Billion in Sustainable Construction


With all the talk — and all the press — about our cash-strapped federal government, you’d think that announcements of new government spending would be few and far between. But not if you’re into green building. President Obama is teaming with former President Clinton to invest $4 Billion — yes, that Billion, with a “B” — in sustainable construction. Check it out here.

How much will that $4 Billion investment cost taxpayers? If you answered $4 Billion, you’d be wrong. The answer is zero! I guess they’re just going to pluck that money from the tree.


But don’t worry where the money’s coming from. Worry where it’s going. To you? Or your competitor. Get your LEED Certificate out and polished — or maybe just get it.
